IN THE HOLY PLACE

"When ye shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso read-eth, let him understand).” Matthew 24:15.
THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION IN THE HOLY PLACE
In the 24th chapter of Matthew Jesus tells of the events to come "at the end of the age," and in verses 15 and 21 He warns: "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (who so readeth, let him understand) ; . . . For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." In the 13th chapter of Mark this passage is rendered: "When ye shall see the abomination of desolation . . . standing where it ought not."
Now it seems quite clear that the "holy place," to which Jesus refers, is the land of Palestine which was given by Jehovah to His Chosen people of Israel to be an "inheritance" forever.
When on May .16, 1948, the Zionist Jews set up the "Nation of Israeli" in Palestine, in this writer's opinion, it was the first step toward setting "the abomination of desolation in the holy place . . . where it ought not be."
The writer of this article is well aware of the fact that he will probably be subjected to a malicious smear attack for making such a statement, but facts are stubborn things and no amount of villification or abuse by Zionism's ill-starred Gestapo, the Anti-Defamation League, can change these facts.
It is a strange thing indeed that Zionist Jews, without offering a shred of evidence, have seduced practically the whole world, including the Church of Jesus Christ, into accepting the lie that they are the Chosen People of the Bible and when anyone dares to question their claims, bringing unimpeachable evidence to support his position, the Jews do not offer any rebuttal to such evidence, but they resort to well organized campaigns of smear attacks, abusive villification and even physical force against those who present the facts.
To cover up the weakness of their position they cry that they are being persecuted when the falsity of their claims and of their real objectives are exposed and so effective have been their tactics that even the majority of Christians thoughtlessly condemn any one who dare to tell the truth about the Jews.
To prevent exposure of their "schemes,” the Jews are trying to get laws passed in every state, as well as a Federal Statute, making it a crime punishment by fine and imprisonment to criticize, ridicule or expose the Jews as a nation, people or religious group. Under these laws, which have already been passed in at least two states, it is a crime to condemn, criticize or expose the Jews, no matter what nefarious plots they might plan or what conspiracies they might engage in, as "a nation, people, or religious group."
No other minority group in our nation has ever had the audacity to claim such preferential "rights" for themselves and the only reason why modern Zionist Jewry does resort to such lengths to stifle all criticism and opposition is that they know very well that their whole program is a Satanic perversion of the truth and that it will not stand up if subjected to the white light of open-minded and unbiased examination of the facts.
Modern Zionism is the "Abomination of desolation, spoken of by the prophet Daniel," and that "Abomination" is now being set-up iii 'the "Holy Place." In this article the writer proposes to "prove" that this statement is true by presenting as much factual evidence as available space will permit and he invites the reader to critically examine this evidence and then judge the matter for himself.
THE "HOLY COVENANT"
The only possible "right" under which the Jews can claim title to the land of Palestine is that they are the heirs to Jehovah's Holy Covenant, made with-Abraham and his seed, so we shall examine the facts to determine whether or not such a claim can be justified.
First of all, the Bible definitely reveals that Jehovah promised Abraham: "And I will establish My Covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting Covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And 1 will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God." (Gen. 17:7-8.)
David records the descent of this "inheritance" in the promised land in I Chron. 16:11-18 and Psalm 105:4-11: "Seek Jehovah and His strength, seek His face continually. Remember His marvelous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth; O ye seed of Israel His servant, ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones. He is Jehovah our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Be ye mindful of His Covenant; the word which He commanded to a thousand generations; even of the covenant which He made with Abraham, and of His oath unto Isaac; and hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to ISRAEL for an everlasting covenant, saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance."
Note that the Covenant passes from Abraham, to Isaac, to Jacob and finally to Israel and to understand the full significance of this descent we must determine what Israel includes.
The Scriptures clearly reveal that the Covenant came down through one individual in each generation to Jacob and we are also told that the "seed to which the promise was made" was to be multiplied in a race, which, according to Jehovah's promise, would become a "great and mighty nation," in which all 4
the other nations of the earth shall be blessed.
The Bible also reveals that this seed was multiplied in the descendants of Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, but contrary to wide-spread belief all the sons of Jacob-Israel did not share equally in the Covenants of Jehovah to which Jacob was made the heir.
According to the Sacred Record, 11 sons were born to Jacob and then El Shaddai appeared to him saying: "Thy name is Jacob; thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; and he called his name Israel," and then He continued, "I am El Shaddai; be fruitful and multiply (as Israel) ; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee . . . And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee (Israel) I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land."
Note that the name ISRAEL was given to Jacob only, and that his 11 sons were not included in the new name; that as Israel he should be fruitful and multiply; and that this Israel multitude would become "a nation and a company of nations." Furthermore "Title" to the land promised to Abraham and Isaac was passed on to the newly named ISRAEL and his seed after him.
In the 48th chapter of Genesis, Israel adopted his two grandsons, the sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, and he passed on to them the "birthright in the promises of Jehovah," after which he called on the Elohim of his fathers Abraham and Isaac, who had also fed him, asking that a divine blessing follow his adopted sons and that his "Name (Israel)" be given to them.
Benjamin was born after Jacob's name had been changed, so naturally he was born to the name Israel.
Thus we see that Israel originally included only Benjamin, who was born an Israelite, and Ephraim and Manasseh who were adopted as Israelites. In order to keep our thinking straight in this matter we must realize that the term "Israel" and the expressions "the house, or children, of Israel" are not synonymous. "The house, family, or children,
of Israel" naturally includes ALL the descendants of Jacob-Israel but the term "Israel" applies only to the Benjamites and those who are "adopted into Israel." Furthermore "Israel" was not, and still is not, a "church," or a body of Believers, but was to be "a nation and a company of nations."
Therefore, as recorded in Genesis 48, Israel, after adopting and blessing his grandsons, prophesied that that Manasseh should, in the last days, become "A Great People or Nation" while "the seed of Ephraim should be a Multitude (or Company) of Nations."
That Paul understands this truth is shown fti the 9th chapter of his Epistle to the Romans. Remembering that Paul himself was a Benjamite, let's read a few verses of this chapter: "I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren (the Benjamites) my kinsmen according to the flesh; WHO ARE ISRAELITES; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service, and the promises . . . For they are NOT all Israel, which are of Israel."
Clearly this indicates that Paul's brothren according to the flesh (the Benjamites) were natural born Israelites and that the others must be "adopted as Israelites" because the other sons, of Jacob-Israel' are not Israel by birth.
Theologians have spiritualized this statement to mean that none are Israelites naturally but that anyone, from any race can become an Israelite by accepting Jesus as a personal Saviour. However, when we read the next few verses it becomes clear that Paul had no such thought in mind for he writes: "Neither because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children (of promise) ; but in Isaac shall thy seed be called."
In other words not all the descendants of Abraham were heirs to the "promises," (national covenants), for the "seed of promise" came down through Isaac.
And Paul also shows that not all the children of Isaac inherited the promises for he writes, in verses 10, 12: "And not only this; but when Rebecca also
had conceived by one, even our father Isaac ... It was said unto her, the elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated."
To sum up the matter we have seen that the name "Israel" was conferred by El Shaddai (God Almighty) on one man, namely Jacob, and that as "Israel" he became a nation and a company of nations.
Benjamin, Jacob-Israel's youngest son, was born an Israelite and Manasseh and Ephriam, Joseph's sons, were adopted by Israel; the name "Israel" was conferred upon them as well as the "birthright" promised to Abraham and his seed; and Manasseh and Ephriam were chosen to become "The Great Nation" and "The Company of Nations" respectively.
THE JEWS NOT ISRAEL
If the Jews are modern Israel they must be descended from Ephraim, Manasseh and Benjamin and they must, in the last days, be "A Nation and a Company of Nations."
There is not a single recognized historian, Jewish or non-Jewish, who would try to "prove" that modern Zionist Jewry is made up of Ephraim and Manesseh, who were taken into captivity by the Assyrians with the peoples of the ten-tribed northern Kingdom of Israel.
While it is true that for some time the tribe of Benjamin was associated with Judah, as the light-bearing tribe, we shall discover later in our studies that the Benjamites, in conformity with Jehovah's instructions, separated themselves from the "residue of Judah" nearly 2,000 years ago.
Furthermore, if the Jews are modern Israel they must be, in these last days, "a nation and a company of nations," who shall ultimately be united as one Great and Mighty Nation as promised to Abraham's seed.
It is a matter of historic record that the Jews have never been such "a nation and a company of nations," nor is there any prospect they will ever fulfill this
part of Israel's divinely-appointed destiny.
While the primary purpose of this article is to examine the claims of modern Zionist Jews that they are the rightful heirs to the land to Palestine under the promises made to Abraham, it will help to clarify the whole matter if we take the time to identify the real Israelites in the world today, for if the Bible is true then Manasseh and Ephraim must be "A Great Nation" and "A Great Company of Nations" in the earth at the present time.
First let's consider the national destiny of Ephraim and Manasseh. In Deut. 33:13-17, Moses blessed "Joseph" and he concluded this blessing with the prophecy: "His glory is like the firstlings of His bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns; with them (his horns) he shall push the peoples together to the ends of the earth; and they (his horns) are the ten thousands of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh.”
Again in Jer. 51:19r20, Jehovah declares: "The portion of Jacob is not like them (the Babylonians); for he is the former of all things; and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: Jehovah of hosts is his name. 'Thou art My battle-axe and weapons of war; for with thee I will break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms.' "
Note that "Israel" is the "rod of Jacob's inheritance," and as "A Great Nation and a Company of Nations," Jehovah will use these "two horns of Joseph" to "push the peoples of the earth together (i.e. 'into unity') to the ends of the earth" and also as His "battle-axe and weapons of war" to break and destroy the Babylonian kingdoms and nations.
The only time that El Shaddai's promises to Israel to become "a nation and a company of nations" could be fulfilled was after the expiration of the Seven Times (2520 years) exile among the nations of the earth, to which the children of Israel were sentenced because
of their failure to keep the covenant they made at Sinai, and before they are finally restored as "The Great and Mighty NATION" promised to the Seed of Abraham.
Now Manasseh was first taken into captivity between the years 745 to 740 B. C., and Ephraim went into captivity in 721-20 3. C.
Both secular and Biblical histories agree that these Israelites were taken into the land of the Medes, south and west of the Caspian Sea, and it is also matter of historic record that their Assyrian conquerors called the captive Israelites "Beth Sak" and "Beth Khumri," the Assyrian equivalents for the "House of Isaac' and the "House of Omri," respectively.
It is also a recognized fact of history that a people, variously known as Sacs, Saccae, Saca Suna, Saxones, Saxons, Kumbri, Cymbri, Cimmerians, etc., migrated northward from Media into Scythia and the Crimea, and it was from this very territory that the Celto-Anglo-Saxon-Cymbric peoples moved westward until they finally came to the Isles and the Coastlands of Northwestern Europe, from whence they continued their trek still westward to the shores of North America.
In America these "wanderers" established A New Nation, known as "We the People of the United States," between The years 1776-1782 A. D. just Seven Times (2520 years) after the Manasseh went into captivity.
In the British Isles, these same peoples formed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (a company of nations) on Jan. 1, 1801, exactly Seven Times after Ephraim had gone into exile, and this United Kingdom has grown into the present "Commonwealth of British Nations."
In short then the U.S.A. and the British Commonwealth are modern ISRAEL and are the rightful heirs to Palestine rather than the "Zionist Jews." The evidence in support of this conclusion is so overwhelming that any fair-minded student will be compelled to accept it as true if he will but examine it
However, very little of this evidence is permitted in our histories and records because it would pull the props completely from under the false claims of the Satanically-inspired Cabal which is now seeking to "stand in the Holy Place."
THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION
The next phase of our study must be to identify, from a Biblical standpoint, this "Abomination which maketh desolate."
Now there are a number of "Abominations" mentioned in the Scriptures, but both Jesus and Daniel clearly refer to specific "Abomination" which shall actually stand in the "Holy place," or Palestine.
In Deut. 13:J2-17, Moses warns Israel: "If thou hear say . . . Certain men, the children of Belial (Satan), are gone, out from among yon, and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; then shall thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and behold if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such ABOMINATION is wrought among you; thou shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein . . . And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit . . . And there shall cleave nought of the ACCURSED (Devoted) thing to thine hand."
From the 7th chapter of Joshua it is evident that the accursed thing is Gold and Money. In verse 1 we read: "The children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing; for Achan . . . of the tribe of Judah, took the accursed thing; and the anger of Jehovah was kindled against the children of Israel."
In verses 20-21 this accursed thing is described: "Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against Jehovah of Israel . . . When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonian garment (system or program), and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it."
Achan was quick to see the power and influence enjoyed by those who could create "credit-money" and lend it at interest under the Babylonian Monetary System, so he took the gold and silver, which in this System is the basis for credit manipulation and control, intending to use this System in Israel.
However, the important point in the matter is that the Gold and Silver, when used as a foundation for such a Monetary System, is an accursed thing in the sight of Jehovah and therefore, Israel was admonished to have nothing to do with it.
Jehovah (Deut. 25:13-16) instructed Israel: "Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small. Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small... For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an ABOMINATION unto Jehovah."
Here then we see that those who use unjust weights and measures for their own advantage are an ABOMINATION and it is clear from the Scriptures that unjust monetary standards or measures come into this same category.
For instance, in Ezek. 45:9-12, we read: "Thus saith Jehovah; Let it suffice you, 0 princes (rulers) of Israel; remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your exactions from my people, saith Jehovah. Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath... And the shekel (money) shall be twenty gerahs."
Again in Lev. 27:25 Jehovah declared: "All thy estimations (valuations) shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary; twenty gerahs shall be the shekel."
The "desolations" resulting from the use of unjust standards is shown in Micah 6:11-15: "Shall I count them pure with wicked balances, with the bag of deceitful weights? For the rich men thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth. Therefore also will I make thee sick in smiting thee, in making thee desolate because of thy sins. Thou shalt eat, hut not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword. Thou shalt sow, but thou shalt not reap, etc."
In the 8th chapter of Amos we read: "Thus hath Jehovah showed unto me; behold a basket of summer fruit. And He said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer friut. Then said Jehovah unto me, The end is come upon My people of Israel; for I will not again pass by them any more. And the songs of the temple shall be bowlings in that day, saith Jehovah; there shall be many dead bodies in every place, they shall cast them forth in silence. Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail, saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making ephah (measures) small, and the shekel (money) great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? That ye may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat? ... Shall not the land mourn for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood and it shall be cast out and drowned as by the flood of Egypt."
The essence of this whole matter then is that the use o'f unjust weights, measures and money brings injustice, suffering, war and desolation to the peoples, and those who "do these things" are the "Abomination which maketh desolate."
A DIABOLICAL PLOT
It is also clear from the Scriptures that the use of the "accursed thing," (the silver and gold of Mammon), did not originate in Israel but came out of Babylon and that "certain men," who
were of the Serpent Seed line, planned the whole System and put it into execution to destroy Israel.
In Deut. 13, as we have already noted, Jehovah warned His people of Israel that, "Certain men," who were "children of Belial (Satan)," would try to lead them astray and He ordered that these Interlopers be completely cast out and that the "accursed thing," (Babylonian money), be destroyed. However, Israel did not obey Jehovah's instructions, for Jude, in his Epistle, lamented that these enemies were still in Israel in his day, saying, "Certain men have crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation."
If we will but "search the Scriptures," as Jesus admonished, we need not be left in the dark as to the identity and the purposes of these subversive plotters for the central theme of the whole Bible revolves around the story of an age-long conflict between two races, or seed lines, namely the "Seed of the Woman" and the "Seed of the Serpent." (Gen. 3:15.)
It is impossible in this article to go into the matter as to how these two race lines came on the earth but the writer has written a number of articles on the subject and such of our readers as may not be familiar with the subject may receive copies of these articles on request as long as our present supply lasts.
For our present purposes it must suffice to merely point out that when the children of Israel came out of Egypt to enter the land promised to their fathers, they found a race of Canaanites in possession of the land. These Canaanites were basically of the Cain "Serpent Seed" line, but Ham, Noah's son, had married into this Cain race, mixing his "seed" with that of the Serpent race and the "Canaanites," who were one of the hybrid races resulting from this union, derived their name from "Canaan," one of Ham's sons.
Jehovah instructed His Chosen People of Israel: "Thou shalt make no covenants with them (the Canaanites), nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against Me." (Ex. 23:32-33.)
These Canaanites were of the inferior hybrid "Serpent Seed" line, and despite the fact that the "seed of Ham" had been added to the race, they still did not possess the abilities and qualities necessary to make them really effective agents for helping Satan succeed in his ambitious plans. Hence he was always on the watch for opportunities to add to his Canaanite Servant Race the superior qualities of the "appointed seed" of Seth.
When Jacob incurred the envy and hatred of his brother Esau, by "supplanting" him as heir to the birthright and the blessings given to the Seed of Abraham, Satan was quick to take advantage of the situation, inducing Esau I to marry two Canaanitish women thus I uniting "his seed" with the Canaanite Serpent race.
Naturally all of the progeny of this "union" inherited the "envy of Esau" against his brother Jacob and his seed, but the branch of the family of Esau in which we are particularly interested in our present study is the Amalekites, who were the descendants of Amalek, the grandson of Esau. These Amalekites became "leaders" of Satan's "Kingdoms of this World," through which he has through the long centuries of time sought to gain mastery over the earth and its peoples.
In Numbers 24:20, we are told that "Amalek was the first of the nations to war against Israel" and an account of this first "war" between the Amalekites and the Israelites is found in the 17th chapter of th ebook. of Exodus.
After this war was over, Jehovah declared (verses 14-16) that He would "utterly put out remembrance of Amalek from under heaven ... because the hand of Amalek is against the throne of Jehovah, therefore, the hand upon the throne of Jehovah shall have war with Amalek from generation to generation." From I Chron. 28:4:5 it is clear that the "throne of Jehovah" is the "throne over His Kingdom of Israel" and that the Royal House of David was chosen to occupy this throne forever. Again we read that "Solomon gat on the throne of Jehovah as king instead of David kin father."
In Pslam 89:35-36, Jehovah promised: "Once have I sworn by My holiness that I will not lies unto David. His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before Me." In II Sam. 7-16 Jehovah declared: "And thine (David's) house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee; thy throne shall be established forever."
These are but a few of the scores of passages which prove that Jehovah's throne on the earth is the throne given to the House of David and that this ''throne" must still be on the earth.
Just as we can identify the Celto-Anglo-Saxon-Christian-Israel peoples as the modern "children of Israel," so we can also identify the Royal throne of Britain (modern Ephraim-Israel) as the throne of Jehovah given to the "seed of David."
When we take these facts into account and also remember that the non-Israel Babylonian Kingdoms of this World Order are under the domination of the Amalekites, it is a simple matter to follow the wars, in every generation, between "the hand on the throne of Jehovah" and the "Amalekites" through the pages of history to the present time, and the Scriptures tell us that these wars will continue until "remembrance of Amalek shall be removed from under heaven."
Satan was not satisfied by merely bringing the seed of Ham and the seed of Esau into his Serpent Seed line and consequently, when Shelah, the half-Canaanite son of Judah and his Canaanite wife, was denied the Sceptre promised to Judah, Satan took advantage of Shelah's natural disappointment and resentment, inducing him to blend his seed with the Canaanite strain.
These disgruntled Shelah-Canaanites remained in Judah, residing mainly in Achzib (meaning ‘Deceit’ in Hebrew), and they became Satan's arch-plotters as a "fifth column" within the Kingdom of Israel.
In I Chron. 4:21-23 we are told that the, "sons of Shelah . . . dwelt with the king for his work." In other words the Shelanites deliberately connived to entrench themselves in positions of power and influence in the national administration so that they "could bore from within" to destroy the nation and the throne which they envied and hated.
Writing of the tribulations and difficulties which Israel and Judah must undergo, Micah declared that, "the house of Achzib (Shelah) shall be a lie (treason) to the kings of Israel," and the history of Israel gives many instances of treason on the part of the Shelanite-Canaanites.
A typical example is found in the story of the rebellion of the northern tribes of Israel against King Rehoboam, as recorded in the 12th chapter of I Kings and the 10th chapter of II Chronicles.
When "Jeroboam and all the congregation of Israel" came to Rehoboam asking him to reduce their taxes, the King sought first the counsel of his "old" and tried Israel advisers and they recommended that he heed the pleas of the people. However, Rehoboam "forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted, with the young men that were grown up (Heb. 'Gadal' meaning 'become great') with him, and which stood before him," and these young "Braintrust" advisers recommended to Rehoboam that he continue to "tax and spend" rather than ease the burdens of the people.
When Rehoboam accepted the advice of his Shelanite-Canaanite "New Deal" Counsellors, "All Israel" rebelled against him, putting Jeroboam on the throne as king over the northern Kingdom of Israel.
Thus this Shelanite "fifth column" succeeded in dividing the kingdom and opened the way for its complete destruction.
The Shelanite Conspirators remained with the King "to do his work" after the Kingdom was divided and they continued their subversive activities until both the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah were overthrown and the throne of David removed from Jerusalem.
THE INHABITANTS OF JERUSALEM
The Shelanite-Canaanite element is often referred to in the Scriptures as "the bad figs of Judah," the "residue of Judah," the "Inhabitants of Jerusalem," etc.
In the 24th chapter of Jeremiah we learn that the "bad figs" were "Zedekiah . . . and his princes and the residue" that remained in the land after the "good figs" had been taken away in a series of raids by Sennecharib, the Assyrian, and by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. The term "residue" means the "ashes, dregs, lees, etc." and naturally the "residue of Judah" refers to dregs or "bad figs" after the "good figs" were gone.
The expression "Inhabitants of Jerusalem" is interesting. In Joshua 15:63 we read: "As for the Jebusites (one of the tribes descended from Canaan—Gen. 10:16) the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day."
All indications point to the fact that Shelah married into the family of the Jebusite-Canaanite "Inhabitants of Jerusalem." Practically all of the prophets mention two groups in Judah, namely "the men of Judah" and the "Inhabitants of Jerusalem," until the "men of Judah" had gone into captivity, but after that time only the "Inhabitants of Jerusalem," or the "residue of Jerusalem" are mentioned.
These "bad fig Inhabitants of Jerusalem" were undoubtedly the Shelanite-Jebusite-Canaanites, who were a "lie to the kings of Israel" and who conspired against the nation and the throne.
After the "men of Israel" of the northern Kingdom of Israel and the "good fig men of Judah" had gone into captivity, these Shelanite-Canaanite "bad fig Inhabitants of Jerusalem" remained in Palestine under Zedekiah, who was Nebuchadnezzar's puppet king. However, they were such a cross-grained lot that they could not maintain themselves as a "nation," and finally Nebuchadnezzar had to destroy their kingdom completely and take the "bad figs of Judah" to Babylon.
THE BABYLONIAN WOELD CABAL
We have now identified three of the racial lines through which Satan has been working to thwart Jehovah's plans and purposes with and for His people of Israel.
First, the Canaanites, deriving their name from Canaan, Ham's son, who were basically of the old Cain "Serpent Seed" line with which the "Seed of Ham" was joined.
Second, the Amalekites, named after Esau's grandson, who were basically of Canaanite stock to which the "Seed of Esau" had been joined.
And third, the Shelanites, named for Shelah, Judah's son, who were basically of Canaanite ancestry mixed with the "Seed of Judah," through Shelah.
After Zedekiah was dethroned and the Shelanite Jews were taken to Babylon all of these racial lines were together in that city and there they joined in planning and organizing a great "Cabal" through which they hoped to dominate and control the earth and its peoples.
Modern Zionism is merely a continuance of this "Cabal" and its present day objectives are the same as when the "Cabal" was first organized at Babylon.
In the 3rd chapter of Daniel we find an account of the organization of this Babylonian "world conspiracy" and the adoption of the "Image, or Standard, of Gold." The ancient records unearthed in the ruins of Baylon, now in the British Museum, corroborate and amplify the Biblical record. According to these records the program inaugurated at that
time was a complete system for the control of social, economic and political relationships.
The key for such control is "money and credit," for "money and credits" are the "life blood" of all organized communal life and activities, and consequently those who control the flow of exchange mediums can direct the destinies of nations and the world according to their own purposes.
In a perfectly "free economy" there must always be enough "money" to allow the free exchange of all "goods and services" that the industry and initiative of a free people can provide. In such a society the amount of money will of necessity be determined by the amount of goods available for use, because a pure "medium of exchange" can have no intrinsic value in and of itself for it merely represents useful goods which have been produced and made available for use.
The "Kingdom Program" of the Bible is just such a "free economy" with just weights, just measures, and a just "Shekel," produced into circulation by the industry of the people and never "loaned" at usury or interest.
The "Gold Standard" System adopted by the Shelanite - Amalekite - Canaanite Cabal at the first Bayblonian Economic Conference gave control of "money" to those who controlled the "Gold," by giving to them the "right" to loan this "Gold," or mere "Credit," based on Gold, at interest, according to their own judgment.
Such a "System" gave to the "Money-Lenders," who also became "Money-Creators," autocratic power over the "life blood" of communal activities and relationships, enabling them to direct and control social standards, economic practices, and governmental administration.
By clever intrigue, and sometimes by force, the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Plotters brought the nations and peoples of the world under their Babylonian "Gold Standard" World Order, thus becoming an International Financial Sys-
tem, which dominated the "Kingdoms of this World."
From the beginning, Jehovah had warned His People of Israel to remain aloof from this Satanic "World System," and .admonished them to "execute judgment and justice" under "His Commandments, Statutes, and Judgments," which He gave to them for a National Constitution and Body of Law, promising that they would enjoy freedom, prosperity, and complete security for everyone if they would "obey His voice."
In the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy, Jehovah enumerates the blessings they would enjoy IF they would obey His laws and also lists the c/uses that would come upon them if they should fail to do so. Of these curses we wish to call particular attention to the one recorded in verses 43-44, as follows: "And the stranger that is within thee (who had not been driven out) shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He (the Stranger) shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him; he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail."
This curse applies to modern Israel (the British Commonwealth and the U.S.A.) just as literally as it did to Israel in Palestine and to show how completely this curse has come upon us it is merely necessary to point out that the U.S.A. has borrowed, and still owes, more than $250,000,000.00. Now the amount of actual "Money" issued and in circulation by the U.S.A. is less than $30,000,000.00.
In other words, our Nation owes at least six or seven times as much "money" as there is actual American "money" in existence, and consequently the greater portion of this "national debt" represents merely a "Credit" created by a bookkeeping entry in the books of the "Money-lenders."
Then we know that every State, every County-, every Municipality, every school district, every drainage district, every port commission, etc., also has a large bonded debt.
In addition most business organizations have a large bonded indebtedness
and must also "borrow" money for current operating expenses.
It is also fact that millions of homes are mortgaged, or are being paid for on time payments and that most of our automobiles, radios, furniture, etc., are being purchased on the installment plan.
When we total this public and private "indebtedness' it will very probably equal 20 times the amount of "money" in circulation and the difference between actual money in circulation and the amount of the "debt" represents "credit" which is "sold" by the Financiers at usury to take the place of real "money."
Now the borrower must have "assets" to secure the "credit" sold to him at usury but those who make the loans "create" this "credit" by merely making a "bookkeeping entry," yet they collect interest or usury on the full amount of this "credit." Thus in the U.S.A. the "Money-Lenders" collect interest on at least $600,000,000.00 and yet there are less than $30,000,000.00 of real money in circulation.
This whole Financial Setup is International in character and in scope and those who control it owe loyalty and allegiance to no Nation and through expansion and deflation of "Credits" they can control social relationships, education, wages, production and distribution of the necessities of life, publicity, politics and in fact, practically all relationships and activities for individuals, nations and the whole World Order.
Small wonder then that Jehovah warned His People to have nothing to do with such a System and that He declared that those "who do these things are an ABOMINATION unto Himself."
It was this "Abomination which maketh desolate" which sent the "Strangers" into our midst, who through "lending to us" but no borrowing from us have gotten up very high as the Head, while we have come down very low as the Tail.
And this "Abomination which maketh desolate" is a Satanically-inspired World Conspiracy so audacious in purpose, and concept and so wide-spread in its scope and ramifications that it is very difficult for "men of good-will" to believe
that it actually exists.
While International Finance is one of the most effective instrumentalities used by this great "Cabal" it is in reality merely one of hundreds of such instrumentalities used by the "Abomination of Desolation," which under the guise of "Zionism" this "Abomination" is now setting itself up in Palestine.
As we have already pointed out, and shall "prove" before this article is concluded, modern Zionist Jewry is not Israelitish in either origin or destiny but is made up of the Shelanite "bad figs" of Judah joined with the Amalekites and Canaanites and that they are in truth those of whom Jesus spoke when He declared: "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the Synagogue of Satan."
In order to clarify some of the issues involved, we shall consider briefly a few of the salient factors having a vital bearing in the whole matter.
ISRAEL AND JUDAH
First of all we must realize that the Bible make a clear distinction between Israel and Judah. In Psalm 114:1-2, Jehovah declared: "When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language; Judah was His Sanctuary, and Israel His Dominion."
All the "kingdom and national" promises and covenants are made with Israel and not a single such promise or covenant is made with or to Judah as a separate or distinct house or family.
However, Judah was called to be Jehovah's Sanctuary and as such this House has been used, and will be used, until Jehovah's purposes with and for His Chosen People have been fulfilled.
An example of Judah acting as Jehovah's Sanctuary occurred when the northern tribes rebelled against the House of David and Judah became the Sanctuary for the throne of David.
One point in this matter is often overlooked. Jehovah promised to David that he and his seed should reign in "Israel" and this promise could not be fulfilled if the King merely reigned in Judah the Sanctuary.
Therefore Jehovah told Solomon: "I will surely rend the Kingdom from thee and will give it to thy servant (Jeroboam). Notwithstanding in thy days I will rend it out of the hand of thy son (Rehoboam). Howbeit I will not rend way ALL the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son (Rehoboam) for David my servant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen."
Now Judah voluntarily remained loyal to the throne but Jehovah gave the tribe of Benjamin to Rehoboam and to understand the full significance of this "gift" we must remember that the Benjamites were natural born Israelites and hence a part of the "kingdom of Israel." Furthermore it should be noted that Jerusalem, the capital of Israel was in the territory of Benjamin.
Just as He had promised then, Jehovah did not rend all the kingdom away from Rehoboam for Benjamin as part of the Kingdom, was given to the Royal House of David and therefore even the Kingdom over which the house of David reigned was called the Kingdom of Judah, the King really reigned in ISRAEL, while Judah became the Sanctuary to protect the throne until the "Throne" could be moved to the British Isles, where the "seed of Israel" had become a nation.
When the need for a Sanctuary for the throne was ended the Kingdom of Judah was destroyed. First Sennacherib came against Judah during the reign of Hezekiah and carried away the greater part of the "men of Judah" into the land of the Medes. These "men of Judah" were never taken to Babylon but went into exile with the northern tribes and they were never a part of the "Jews" who came back from Babylon.
Then during the reigns of Jehoiakim and his son Jehoichin or Jeconiah, Nebuchadnezzar took the "good figs of Judah . . . into the land of the Chaldeans for good." (Jer. 24:1, 5.)
Of these "good figs" Jehovah said: "I will set My eyes on them for good,
and I will bring them again to this land; and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up." (Jer. 24:6).
The return of the "Jews" to Palestine almost certainly was not a fulfillment of this prophecy for those "Jews" who did return from Babylon, were later "pulled down . . . and plucked up, and therefore, this prophecy for the return of the 'good figs' must be still future."
After Nebuchadnezzar had "carried away captive Jeconiah (Jehonichin) the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths," (the good figs), he put Zedekiah on the throne at Jerusalem and he reigned for 11 years over those that remained in Jerusalem.
Jehovah identifies these "Jews" over, which Zedekiah reigned, after the "good figs" had been taken out, as the "bad figs of Judah," saying, "As the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith Jehovah, so will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue (dregs or ashes) of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt."
And then Jehovah continues: "And I will deliver them to be tossed to and fro among all the kingdoms of the earth for hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them till they be consume from off the land that I gave unto them and their fathers." (Jer. 24:8-10.)
These "bag figs" were the Shelanite "Inhabitants of Jerusalem," who had conspired against the Kingdom of Israel and the Throne of David and it was their hope that they could "take over" the "Kingdom" to become "Master's of the Earth."
Claiming to represent the "Seed of Abraham" and "Israel," to which the "national promises and covenants" had been given, these "bad figs" began laying plans for World Conquest.
This plot is exposed by Ezekiel, the prophet, who had been taken into captivity with the "good figs" of Judah.
In Ezek. 11:14-15, while Ezekiel was in the land of the Chaldeans and while Zedekiah was reigning over the "Inhabitants, or Residue, of Jerusalem," we are told that "the Word of Jehovah" came unto him, saying, "Son of man, thy brethren, even the men of thy kindred (the good figs), and all the house of Israel wholly (of the ten-tribed northern Kingdom), are they unto whom the Inhabitants of Jerusalem (the Shelanite bad figs) have said, "Get you far away from Jehovah, unto us is this land given in possession."
Thus we see that the ancestors of present day Zionist Jewry, or at least of that portion of modern Jewry, which has any connection at all with the Chosen "People of Israel, made exactly the same claim that is being made today by their descendants.
THE NATION OF THE JEWS
Seventy years after the Kingdom of Judah had been destroyed a comparatively small portion of the Babylonian Captivity returned to Jerusalem to set up the "Nation of the Jews."
This Nation of the Jews was in no sense the restoration of Israel foretold in the Scriptures for it fulfilled none of the conditions, neither was it a restoration of the Kingdom of Judah for that Kingdom can never again be restored in the Holy Land. (Jer. 19:10-13.) The tribe or house of Judah must "walk with (or, to,) the house of Israel" before it can return to the land promised to their fathers.
However, Paul tells us that unto the Jews "were committed the Oracles of Jehovah." In other words, a remnant of Judah was used as a Sanctuary to preserve the "Scriptures."
The need for such a Sanctuary becomes apparent when we remember that the "people of Israel" and the "men of Judah," who had been scattered among the nations, "forgot" their identity and made no effort to preserve the Scriptures. The Judahites in Babylon had also come so completely under the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Cabal that the Scriptures would soon have been very much corrupted and altered, if not completely destroyed, had not a Sanctuary been provided.
The claim that the "Jews" gave us our Bible is absolutely false but it is true that Jehovah did use a Remnant, not a residue, of Judah, which was a part of the Nation of the Jews, as a Sanctuary for His Written Word.
This "remnant of Judah" has long since -been submerged by the Shelanite-Canaanite "fifth column," who claim that they are Jews, but are not, for they are the Synagogue of Satan.
The "Nation of the Jews" was representative of "All Israel," for the Benjamite, as Paul says, "are Israelites," * and while a "Remnant of Judah" was used as a Sanctuary for the Oracles, this Remnant of Judah did not constitute the whole Nation of the Jews.
When the "Captivity" returned from Babylon to Palestine, it was "the chief fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the Priests, and the Levites, with all whose spirit Jehovah had raised up, to go to build the house of Jehovah in Palestine" who returned. (Ezra 1:5.)
Through Daniel, Jehovah revealed that the "Nation of the Jews" would exist for only Seventy prophetic weeks (about 490 years), and He explained the destiny of this "Nation" thus: "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and thy holy city, to furnish the transgression, to make an end of sin, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy." (Daniel 9:24.)
These objectives were all fulfilled in Jesus Christ as the Redeemer of Israel and they were in no sense limited to Judah. Therefore, just as it was necessary that "Israel" be represented by the "tribe of Benjamin" as long as the Royal Throne of David was in. Jerusalem, so it was also necessary that at least a part of Israel be present to "receive the Messiah."
However, the Shelanites, who had always conspired against both Israel and Judah, also returned from Babylon and in the "Nation of the Jews" they continued their subversive activities.
As the "scribes, recorders and King's servants" they had held positions of influence and power in the national and collective life of Israel and it seems clear that they held even more important positions in the "Nation of the Jews."
Starting as "potters, and those who worked among plants" the sons of Shelah became known as the "inhabitants of Netaim (plants) and Gederah (walls and hedges)," (I Chron. 4:21-23), but from these menial positions they became the King's servants in the administration of his duties and responsibilities.
Many Bible students have had difficulty identifying the "Nethinims" but this writer is of the opinion that they were the "Shelanite Servants" of the King. In I Chron. 9:2 we are told that the Nethinims were with the Israelites when they first settled in the promised land. In Ezra 2:43-57 the families of the "Nethinims," who returned from Babylon with Zerrubbabel, are named and in verse 58 they are called "the children of Solomon's servants."
The responsibilities placed upon these "Nethinims" is indicated in Ezra 8:20 where we are told that "David and the princes" had appointed them for the service of the Levites.
All in all it seems much more reasonable to believe that these "Netinims" were the Shelanite-Canaanite descendants of Judah than that they were "Gibeonites," for they are never identified in any way as being descended from the latter.
In any event, it is clear that the influence of the "scribes and recorders," who originally were merely clerks and civil servants, increased until at the time of Jesus they actually "sat in Moses' Seat." (Mat. 23:2.)
To understand the full implications of this statement we must remember that Moses was a "Lawgiver and Administrator" in Israel rather than a
"Priest." In Deut. 33:4-5 we are told: "Moses commanded us a lay, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob. And he was king in Jeshurun (poetic name for Israel}, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together."
The statement, therefore, that the "Scribes sat in Moses' Seat," means that these "Scribes," who had been the clerks and recorders in the King's service, had taken over the seat of government.
Keeping these points in mind it becomes apparent that Jesus was not castigating 'the "Scribes" for their false religious teachings so much as for their maladministration of national affairs.
After bringing his indictment, Jesus proceeded to expose their real identity and reveal their diabolical plots. • .
In verses 29-31 Jesus taunted: "Woe unto' you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, and say, 'If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets." Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets."
In other words Jesus told the "Scribes" that their apologies for the actions of their fathers "proved" that they were descended from the ones who had killed the prophets, and then He told them: "Fill up the measure of your fathers."
And to clinch His point, Jesus called them "Serpents," and a "race of Vipers," after which He scornfully adds: "Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and some of them ye shall kill and crucify, and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city."
In short, Jesus told the Scribes that they were the children of those who had in the past killed the prophets; that they were a Serpent Race; and that they would continue to "fulfill the measure of their fathers" by "killing, scourging and persecuting" His disciples.
Then in verse 35, the patient, humble friend and Saviour of Sinners, is quoted as uttering against this "Serpent Race" what is probably the most terribly judgment to be found in the entire Scriptures, when He declared: "That upon yon (the race of Vipers) may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth from the blood of righteous Abel."
Note that Jesus said that the "Scribes" who had usurped the "Seat" of authority in the Nation, were of a "Serpent Race," which had been responsible for "all the righteous blood shed on the earth from the blood of righteous Abel." Now we know that Cain killed his brother Abel, and since the "scribes" were of the "Race" on whose hands was all the righteous blood shed on the earth from the time of Abel, therefore, they must be the descendants of Cain, who was the father of the "Serpent Seed" Race.
We have already seen that the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Plotters against Israel were basically of the Cain "Serpent Seed" Race to which had been joined the "Seed" of Ham, Esau and Judah, who were all of the "Appointed Seed of Seth."
Consequently they were a "Hybrid" Race, which Satan was, and still is, using to destroy Israel.
For further clarification of this matter let's turn to the 8th chapter of the Gospel of John, in this chapter we are told that the "scribes and Pharisees" came to discredit Jesus and after Jesus had said that no man could be free unless he in made free in the Son of the Heavenly Fattier, they said: "We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man."
To this claim Jesus replied: "I know that ye are Abraham's seed" but then He went on to show that He and the "Scribes" did not have the same Father, saying: "1 speak that which I have seen with My Father; and ye do that which ye have seen with your father."
To this the Jews answered: "Abraham is our father," but Jesus by His reply showed positively that this was not true, telling them: "If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill Me, a man who has told you tku truth, which I have heard of Jehovah, this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father."
Here we have a paradoxical situation: Jesus admitted that His tempters were "of the seed of Abraham," yet denied that they were "the children of Abraham," but when we carefully consider the matter the difficulty disappears.
In Gal. 3:16 Paul writes: "Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." In verse 18 we read, "For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise; but Jehovah gave it to Abraham by promise."
In other words the "inheritance" promised to Abraham was to come down to one seed and not to many seeds of Abraham and the one seed to which the inheritance of promise was given IS CHRIST.
Now the inheritance promised to Abraham and his one seed was not a special kind of personal salvation, for the gift of "everlasting life" is a free gift to every fallen child of Adam.
Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the World offers this gift of life to every dying Adamite, who will accept it by faith; "For Jehovah so loved the World that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life."
But while Jehovah did provide this everlasting life as a gift to all the dying children of Adam, it is equally certain that He promised a specific and definite inheritance to Abraham and his seed and this promised inheritance consisted of a title deed forever to the land of Canaan and also that the "Race," in which the "Seed of Promise" has been "multiplied" shall become "A Great and Mighty Nation," through which all the other nations of the earth shall be blessed.
Therefore the "Children of Abraham," who are heirs to the promise, are the ones in whom the "one seed," to which the promise was given, has been multiplied.
Paul makes it very clear that this "One Seed" is Christ and hence it is Christ that must be multiplied in Israel.
Most Christians spiritualize this truth and completely ignore the fact that this "Seed," which is Christ, was to be multiplied in a literal Race, which should become a "Great and a Mighty Nation."
In Romans 9:7-9 Paul makes it clear that this "Seed of Promise" comes down through a literal "family line," saying: "Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children (of promise); but in Isaac shall thy (Abraham's) seed be called . . . For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sarah shall have a son."
Here then we have the answer to the paradox. Abraham had many seeds and several children were born to him, but in only one of these sons, namely, Isaac was the Seed of Promise. Consequently Ishmael and the children by Keturah were of Abraham's seed but they were not "children of promise," nor heirs to the inheritance promised, for they were not of the "ONE SEED (CHRIST) to which the Promise was given." This "One Seed" came down only in the son born to Abraham and Sarah, namely, Isaac.
Now the Seed of Noah was in the Canaanites for Ham was of the line of Noah but this seed of Ham was not the seed of Abraham. However, the seed of Abraham was joined with the Canaanites when Esau, who was the son of Isaac, married into the Canaanite "Serpent" Race, but this seed of Esau was not "the seed of promise" because even before Esau and Jacob were born, Jehovah had promised that Jacob should inherit under the covenants with the "seed of promise."
The "seed of Judah" was also united with the Canaanite "Serpent Seed" line in Shelah, but here again this was not the promised "seed." We have already seen that after El Shaddai had changed Jacob's name to Israel, He continued the promises and covenants with him as Israel and not as Jacob.
In the 9th chapter of Romans, verses 3-4, Paul declared that "his brethren, his kinsmen after the flesh (the Benjamites) ARE Israelites, to whom pertain-eth the adoption . . . and the promises." We have also noted that Ephraim and Manasseh were "adopted into Israel" by Jacob-Israel himself and to them was given the birthright in the promises.
Now Judah was born Jacob, for he was born before Jacob's name was changed to Israel and hence the tribe or house of Judah must be adopted into Israel and there is no record that such adoption has yet taken place. At least it had not taken place when Shelah was born to Judah and his Canaanite wife, so Shelah did not receive, and hence could not pass on the "seed of promise" to the Shelanites.
Furthermore it is also a fact that no Canaanite could inherit under the covenant of promise, making it absolutely certain that the Shelanites were not the "children of promise." Shelah although the eldest living son of Judah could not even inherit the "Sceptre" which was given to Judah (Gen. 49:10).
Now let's return to the 8th chapter of John and continue our study of Jesus' dispute with the "Scribes."
After Jesus had confounded them in their claims to being "children of Abraham," the Jews tried to cast a slur on His birth, saying: "We are not born of fornication; we have one Father, even Jehovah."
Undoubtedly the Jews had in mind the fact that Jesus was born of Mary, an unmarried Virgin, but from the tenor of the whole conversation it is clear that their words had a far deeper significance as well.
We are told in the Scriptures that Pharez and Zarah, Judah's sons born to Tamar, were born out of wedlock while Judah and his Canaanite wife were legally married.
It is interesting to note in this connection that Shelah, the half-breed Canaanite, was a legitimate child, but Pharez and Zarah, though illegitimate offspring legally, were pure biologically
for both Judah and Tamar were of the "Appointed Seed" of Seth.
While the illegitimate birth of Pharez and Zarah did "taint" the line for 10 generations (Deut. 23:2) so that the "Sceptre" could not be held by any descendant of the house of Judah for 10 generations, nevertheless, when the line had been cleansed the "sceptre" was given to the line of Pharez, and David, who was the 10th generation from Judah, was a descendant of this line.
Naturally the Shelanites tried to slur the birth of the Royal line descended from Pharez because of its illegitimacy and since Jesus, after the flesh, was of the House and Lineage of David, they sought also to discredit him.
To this charge Jesus replies: "Ye are of your father the devil (literally "the Seducer"), and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning (Cain killed his brother), and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it."
Thus Jesus again traces the ancestry of the Shelanite "Scribes" back to Cain and the "Serpent Seed" Race.
It was of these Shelanite-Canaanite "Fifth Columnist," including their present day descendants, that Jesus spoke when He said: "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan," because He knew that they were "a race of Vipers," descended from the "Canaanites," who were primarily of the "Serpent Seed" line of Cain.
However, Jesus indicated that there were "Jews," who were not of this Serpent Line and this is in agreement with the revelations of the Sacred Scriptures, for as we have already seen, the Jews who returned from Babylon to Jerusalem under Zerrubabel, Ezra and Nehemiah were made up of real Judahites, Benjamites, Levites, etc.
Unfortunately members of the Shelanite-Canaanite "Interlopers," who had been the "King's servants," as scribes, recorders, etc., came with the real Jews and by the time that Jesus came they had gained complete control of the "Nation of the Jews," and "sat in Moses' seat" of authority.
THE SANCTUARY CORRUPTED
We have previously noted that the "Nation of the Jews" was used as a Sanctuary to preserve "the Oracles of Jehovah," and since Judah was Jehovah's Sanctuary it was necessary that Judah be present to act in this capacity during the seventy weeks determined upon the people of Judah. (Dan. 9:24.)
However, the Shelanites completely corrupted this "Sanctuary," and this "Sanctuary of Judah" must, and will, be cleansed, according to the prophecies of Daniel. (Dan. 8:14.)
The writer is aware of the fact that many Bible students interpret the t "cleansing of the Sanctuary" as referring to a literal building, but there is no such "Sanctuary" in the World today nor is there any prospect that any will be built.
On the other hand we know from the Scriptures that Jehovah does pot dwell in Temples built by men's hands and in Ephesians 2:19-22, Paul gives us a vivid description of the true Temple, when he writes that the "fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of Jehovah, are built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone; IN WHOM all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an Holy Temple in Jehovah; IN WHOM they also are builded together for an habitation of Jehovah through the Spirit."
Now Jehovah repeatedly calls His Called out People of Israel His Saints and consequently they are to "fitly framed together" as a Holy Temple which He will inhabit "through the |Spirit." It is in this "Temple" that Judah is the "Sanctuary," and it is this "Sanctuary" in the Temple of His People of Israel which the Shelanite "Jews" have corrupted and which must be cleansed.
the benjamites flee
Since the "Nation of the Jews" was set up to receive the Messiah it was necessary the Israel be represented in the Nation, for the Messiah was to "redeem His People Israel," so that they could fulfill their national destiny; first as "A Great People (or, Nation) and A Great Company of Nations"; and ultimately as that ONE "Great and Mighty Nation," promised to Abraham and his seed, in which "all the other nations of the earth shall be blessed."
While the real Judahites who returned from Babylon either gradually departed from Palestine or became a part of the corrupted Sanctuary, the Benjamites remained in Palestine, but they separated themselves from the Shelanite Jews, becoming the Galileans, who were despised by the Jews, but from among whom Jesus selected 11 of His 12 Apostles.
In Jer. 6:1 the children of Benjamin wert" warned: "O children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Beth-harcerem; for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction," and when Vespasian came against Jerusalem, the Galilean Benjamites believed that the time "to flee" had come. However, before Vespasian could complete the capture of Jerusalem, he was recalled to Rome to become Emperor and he sent his son Titus to complete the task.
The Galilean Benjamites knew that the Romans were the "evil out of the north," and consequently they left Palestine to join their brethren of Israel in the great "trek" across Europe to the promised "Sanctuary" in the "Isles and the Coastlands" of Northwestern Europe.
Historians have been puzzled as to why Titus permitted the Galileans to leave, but to the informed student of prophecy it was merely another fulfillment of pre-written history as found in the Bible.
After the "Benjamites" had left Palestine the last shred of the "Kingdom" represented by Benjamite-Israel, had been taken away from the corrupted "Sanctuary," and this light-bearing "remnant" of the Kingdom (the Benjamites—I Kings 11:36) were given to
Ephraim and Manasseh, where they have in the past been, and will in the future continue to be. "a light before the house of David."
Thus was fulfilled the prophecy of Jesus when He said: "Therefore the Kingdom (the Benjamite remnant — I Kings 11:34-36) of Jehovah shall be taken away from you (the corrupted "Sanctuary") ; and given to a NATION bringing forth fruits thereof." (Mat. 21:43.)
When Titus captured Jerusalem in 70 A. D., most of the "Bad Fig" Shelanite-Canaanite "Jews," who had taken over and corrupted the Sanctuary of Judah were driven out and in 135 A. I), the last "residue of Judah" forced to leave Palestine.
History clearly records that the Shelanite "Bad Figs," who returned to Jerusalem and eventually "corrupted the Sanctuary," were but a part of the Shelanite-Canaanite "Inhabitants of Jerusalem," who had joined with the Amalekites and Canaanites in forming that "Great Cabal" at Babylon, through which they have sought to gain World Mastery, and when the "Jews" were driven out of Palestine by the Romans, they joined their brethren in Babylon or in the many places where they had settled in the furtherance of their Great World Conspiracy.
Sir Leon Levison, in "The Jews in History," p. 38, writes: "Many of the (Jews) found life in Babylon, upon the whole, congenial. They intermarried with foreigners; had built up good businesses, and had no liking for the hardships of a return journey on the score of mere sentiment. They were at ease in Babylon."
In fact, Babylon was considered as a second homeland. Quoting from Chambers Encyclopedia (article on the Jews," Vol. 5, p. 711): "So mild, especially during the later years, was the treatment which they received in the Babylonian empire, that when liberty was announced to the whole body of captives, only the lowest of the low returned, together with the Levites and
the Priests (cf. Talm. Kidd. iv. 1) . . . The influence of this exile, however, was of a most striking and lasting nature. Babylon henceforth became and remained, up to 1000 A. D., the 'second land of Israel'—in many respects even more highly prized than Palestine. To this brief period of the captivity must be traced many of the most important institutions of the Synagogue in its wider sense."
Again in the Encyclopedia Britannica, p. 403, Vol. 15, we are told: "The population of the southern part of Mesopotamia—the strip of land enclosed between the Tigris and the Euphrates— was, according to Graetz, mainly Jewish; while the district extending for about ten miles on the coast of Euphrates from Nehardea in the north to Sura in the south, became a new Palestine with Nehardea for its Jerusalem."
Smith's Bible Dictionary, p. 787, Vol. 1, tells us: "The dispersion (of the Jews) was the general title applied to those Jews, who remained settled in foreign countries after the return from the Babylonian exile."
Thus we see that the Jews had become widely scattered even before the Jews were driven out of Palestine by the Romans, and it was to these scattered brethren that the Shelanite Jews returned when the Romans forced them out of Jerusalem.
Contrary to wide-spread popular belief Judaism, as we know it today, is not the religion of ancient Israel, nor even of Judah. We have already noted that the writer of the article on the Jews," in Chambers Encyclopedia, says that, "To this brief period of the captivity must be traced many of the most important institutions of the synagogue in its wider sense."
In "The Hebrew Peoples," written by Dr. Winckler; L. W. King; Dr. R. G. Brandis; and H. R. Hall, pp. 1781-2, 1784-5, Vol. 8, Harmsworth's History of the World, we read: "Judaism was not evolved in Judah—it was in Babylonia that Judaism became that which it was, and still is ...;"... "Judaism was developed in Babylon, a closely united religious body in the midst of a great heterogeneous, and, as they regarded it, foreign population." . . . "Israel therefore had little to do with the development of Judaism." These authors then go on to say that the distinction between Israel and the Jews, "can best be expressed in the phrase, which may sound paradoxical, but yet aptly characterize the true relationship of the two peoples: 'The Israelites were not Jews.'" (Emphasis added. Ed.)
Naturally these "Jews" became mixed with the peoples among whom they settled but they never deviated from the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Conspiracy in which they have always taken a leading part.
H. G. Wells, in his "Outline of History." (3rd Edition), sums up the whole matter. On pp. 493-94 he writes: "There can be little doubt that the scattered Phoenicians in Spain and Africa and throughout the Mediterranean, speaking as they did a language closely akin to Hebrew and being deprived of their authentic political rights, became proselytes to Judaism. For various phases of vigorous proslyting alternated with phases of exclusive jealousy in Jewish history. On one occasion the Indumeans being conquered, were all forcibly made Jews. There were Arab tribes who were Jews in the time of Mohammed, and a Turkish people (the Khazars, Ed.) who were mainly Jews in South Russia in the ninth century. Judaism is indeed the reconstructed political ideal of many shattered peoples ... It is to the Phoenician contingent and to the Aramean accessions in Babylon that the financial and commercial traditions of the Jews in ascribed. But as a result of these coalesences and assimilations, almost everywhere in the towns throughout the Roman Empire, and far beyond it in the east, Jewish communities traded and flourished, and were kept in touch I through the Bible, and through a religious and educational organization. The main part of Jewry never was in Judea and had never come out of Judea." (Emphasis added.)
On page 232 Wells writes: "The idea of belonging to a chosen race predestined to pre-eminence was a very attractive one ... it inspired a great number of Babylonians (Canaanites and Amalekites especially, Ed.) and the like, to claim Abraham as their father, and thrust their company upon the returning Jews."
It is from such a mixture of races, most of which were "never in Judea and had never come out of Judea," that modern Jewry has come and these "mixed peoples" are held together under a program which was "not evolved in Judah," but which "was developed in Babylon," as the "reconstructed political ideal of many shattered peoples." They have become the most important element used by the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Babylonian Cabal for gaining control of the World by masquerading as Jehovah's "chosen race- pre-destined to pre-eminence."
The real "Directors" of the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Cabal have always remained "hidden," but for some years past they have been operating ov.t of Switzerland and the scope of their activities and instrumentalities is so great and far-reaching that it is difficult for unsuspecting, naive modern Celto-Anglo-Saxon-Christian-Israel peoples to believe that such a diabolic "Program" exists.
However, it does exist and it works through many seemingly independent instrumentalities and agencies, but which, in reality, are directed by the same governing head."
While "money and credit" is the most effective instrumentality for bringing peoples and nations into subjugation, this World Cabal, strange as it may seem, is also back of Communism and other extreme "radical" movements and programs.
Evidence which would fill a big book could be offered to expose the unbelievably ambitious program of this "Cabal," which today in the guise of Zionism is setting up the "Abomination of Desolation in the Holy Place," but in conclusion of this article we shall cite merely a few of many such quotations from
books and articles written and published by Zionists themselves.
The Jewish Publication Society of America in 1920 published a three-volume work by & M. Dubnow, translated from the Russian by I. Friedlander, entitled "History of the Jews in Russia and Poland." On pp. 53-54 of Vol. Ill, Dubnow says that modern Jewry is primarily a "NATION," and that the real objective of present day Jewish efforts is not "equality" of rights and opportunities, but rather recognition of the rights of Jewish citizenship in all nations where the Jews live. Quoting from Mr. Dubnow: "The Jewish Dispora, taken as a whole, represented a national organization ... It was a fatal error on the part of the Parisian Synhedrion convoked by Napoleon, when in its declaration of 1807, it proclaimed that 'Jewry today does not constitute a nation,' an error which during the nineteenth century became an article of faith with the Jews of Western Europe. The latest development of the national movement has shown that Jewry, though scattered among various political states, is a nation full of vitality, and that the Jewish religion is only one of its functions. The Jewish national idea, secularized to a certain degree, is based on the assumption that all sections of the Jewish people, though divided in their political allegiance, form one spiritual and historico-cultural nation . . . What Jewish orthodoxy has for centuries stood for and still stands for, tinder the guise of religious Judaism, progressive Jews should fight for under the banner of a national Jewish culture." (Emphasis added.)
On p. 54 the same author says: "In those lands where Civil emancipation (Britain, the U.S.A., etc.,) has been achieved the fight must go on for national emancipation, the recognition of the Jews as a nation which is entitled to a comprehensive communal and cultural autonomy." (Emphasis added.)
As long as the Jews claim such special rights they must expect opposition to their program. If Irish, Germans, Italians, etc., would dare to claim such rights in the U.S.A. they would be
called "alien subversives," and rightly so, but if anyone dares to expose the subversive nationalism of the Jews he is called un-American. "Consistency thou art a Jewel! ! ! "
Rabbi Joshua Trachtenburg of Easton, Penna., in his essay on the topic: "How to Combat Anti-Semitism in America," which won a prize in a contest conducted by the Jewish "Opinion" Publishing Company, in 1937, began: "Were this essay entitled 'How to Eradicate Anti-Semitism in America' it should have to open with the grim admission: it can't be done! Not short of demolishing the America we live in and building a new one, at any rate." (Emphasis added.)
Our authorities would make short shift of even a friendly Canadian were he to venture the statement that anti-Canadian feeling could not be eradicated short of demolishing the America we live in," but a Jewish Rabbi makes such a statement and I am called "anti-semitic" because I call him a "traitor," which he is.
Remember this statement was not made by an insignificant individual but by a recognized "Rabbi" who won a prize for his essay in a contest judged by such men as George Gordon Battle, John Hayiies Holmes, Everett E. Clinchy, Ludwig Lewisohn and Rabbi Stephen S. Wise.
In an article in "The American Hebrew," for Sept. 19, 1920, the paradoxical tie-up between "money" and "radicalism" under Jewish control is revealed, as follows:
"Out of the economic chaos, the discontent of the Jew evolved capital with its instrumentality, the banking system . . .
"One of the impressive phenomena of the impressive time is the revolt of the Jew against the Frankenstein which his own mind conceived and his own hand fashioned . . .
"That achievement (the Russian Revolution, Ed.), destined to figure in history as the overshadowing result of the World War (One) was largely the outcome of Jewish thinking, of Jewish discontent, of Jewish effort to reconstruct . . .
"What Jewish idealism and Jewish discontent have so powerfully contributed to accomplish in Russia, the same historic qualities of Jewish mind and heart are tending to promote in other countries."
Here out of their own mouths the Shelanite-Amalekite-Canaanite Plotters "bear witness against themselves" that they are that "Abomination that maketh desolate," and we are now witnessing the setting up of this "Abomination in the Holy Place . . . where it ought not be."
As a consequence, Jerusalem shall truly become "a burdensome stone for all people; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded," (Zech. 12:3), and in the whole earth shall "be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time." (Mat. 24:21.) AWAKE! O ISRAEL!
It was of "such a time as this" that Jehovah lamented for His People: "Who is blind, but My servant? or deaf, as My messenger that I sent? . . . Seeing many things, but thou observeth not; opening the ears, but he heareth not... This is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are held in prison houses; they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore . . . Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not Jehovah, He against Whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in His ways, neither were they obedient to His Law." (Isa. 42:19-25.)
But even though modern Celto-Anglo-Saxon-Christian-Israel must go through this "tribulation" our enemies joined in this "Great Conspiracy" cannot, and will not, succeed in their nefarious plots, for "Now thus saith Jehovah that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O ISRAEL, Fear not; for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine." (Isa. 43:1.)
And the culmination of the whole matter is revealed in Isa. 45:16-17, 25: "They (the enemies of Israel) shall be ashamed and confounded, all of them; they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel shall be saved in Jehovah with an everlasting salvation; ye shall not be ashamed or confounded world without end ... In Jehovah shall all the seed of Israel be justified and shall glory."
